What exactly would drive a boy from art school to leave his home in Klaipeda/Lithuania, to end up as a girl selling her body in the streets of Berlin, in sweaty back rooms, and on the sticky seats of a porn movie theater?
- Production Notes

Thanks to Baier who understands and explains, without speaking down to the audience, manipulating us or getting lost in her own art. And her fascinating subject, Julia is a masterpiece devoid of pathos, probably the best documentary I've watched in a long, long while. A film that should be on everyone's list of must-watch, to open the dialogue on what it's really like to live life as "the Other."
